In the Philippines, spoke about the "air clutter" on board the USS Ronald Reagan

34
Aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (Ronald Reagan), sent by the US Navy to the South China Sea, arrives, as stated, on a friendly visit to the Philippines. The appearance in the South China Sea of ​​the number of ships of the 7th fleet The US Navy aircraft carrier in China by another attempt by the United States to escalate the situation in the Asia-Pacific region.




Meanwhile, the Philippine press is discussing a photograph published by US troops from the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier. Attention is drawn to the fact that on the deck of an aircraft carrier of the US Navy "there is nowhere to turn around with a large number of aircraft of various types stationed on it." So, in addition to carrier-based fighters on board the Ronald Reagan, you can see two early warning radar aircraft (E-2 Hawkeye) with their wings folded.

Dozens of military units aviation on the deck of the American aircraft carrier, when entering the Philippine port with a “friendly” visit, very conflicting assessments were made by the Filipinos. Some say that the United States thus continues to demonstrate support for the Philippines. Others believe that the “strewn” with various types of aircraft USS Ronald Reagan only adds a degree of glow, including on the issue of the disputed islands.

It is noted that with modern weapons of the same China, “air clutter” on the deck of an American ship plays an extremely negative role for the ACG itself and is a “strange echo of the 60-70-s”: if there is a real conflict, these aircraft will not even have time to rise from the deck.

            On Enterprise and Forrestal, they lost much more without a fight, not to mention two destroyers that did not notice hefty civilian vessels. Kuznetsov is a ship for practicing secondary weapons in the Russian Federation, but the listed jambs are in the main US army, there is no way to work out a new question. And the fact that the US Navy is full of clinical cretins. And the truth - what comparisons of pioneers with downs can be?

    Smart people are these Filipinos, those who appreciated the combat readiness of an aircraft carrier. However, maybe they were mistaken and the Americans decided to use the aircraft carrier as transporters and brought some of the aircraft for sale.

      This is when the Americans managed to restore friendship with the Philippines! what Most likely, this is a demonstration run for "ostentatious friendship" against China.

      Anything can be. During the WWII, the British used old aircraft carriers to deliver aircraft to the island of Malta. For example the aircraft carrier "Argus". So the Americans decided to learn from the experience.
      For a long time it was used as an air tender: two dry transfer operations. Istr. to Malta (8.1940 - 11.1940), transportation of aircraft from England to Takoradi (12.1940 - 3.1941). Escort of convoys in the Atlantic (4.1941 - 7.1941). As an air transport, 5.1941 set a kind of record by taking on board 92 aircraft (32 Hurricanes and 3 Fulmar in the hangar and 60 Hurricanes on the upper deck). Relocation Brit. dry Istr. to the Vaenga airfield (USSR; 8.1941) and again to Malta (11.1941).

        It was a world war, everyone was afraid of something. And now some are afraid, others are expectantly watching where there is more to snatch, and so that they do not hurt too much in the hands.

    They somehow shot a phantom on the deck spontaneously, and fell into a colleague’s hanging tank, it caught fire, set fire to a neighbor (they also stood tight), the domino effect continued, as a result of more than 100 dead, and more than twenty sides were lost.

      The famous fire at Forrestal AB, in which McCain the third is often blamed (and in vain - that day his plane caught fire, falling into a puddle of burning fuel from a neighbor, into which a rocket from the Phantom had just arrived).
      There, old-style bombs, which were kept on fire only one and a half minutes before detonation (new bombs gave 10 minutes to extinguish), also said their word. The first bomb mowed down all the flight deck fire crews that had been put out to extinguish.

    Yes, in a real conflict with the PRC over the disputed islands in the South China Sea, a good gift from the celestial army.
    Destroy all at once and in an instant.

      China cannot be destroyed all at once. And China has no CHANCE to win against the United States either economically or militarily.

      The whole economy of China is tied to trade with the United States, if there was no trade with the United States in China, there will be a crisis that the world has not yet seen.

      Militarily the same thing, the United States has about a dozen such aircraft carriers and is still under construction.

      And in addition to aircraft carriers, there are more than 60 destroyers, more than 20 cruisers and about 50 nuclear submarines.

      + NATO allies

      And also a bunch of bases and airfields not far from China, from which bombers and multi-role fighters can take off.

      The United States will smash all the military bases of China and its infrastructure with Tomahawks, and then I will smash the remnants of Chinese troops into the dust by aviation using cruise missiles of a smaller radius.

      And all this is not going into the return fire zone from China.

      China's submarine fleet lags behind the United States by orders of magnitude, so nothing shines here either.

      Most of the fired missiles from China will be intercepted by a missile defense system from land and sea.

      Yes, the United States will have losses, but they will not be significant, and China will simply be kicked off a few years ago and probably divided.

      Tactics worked out on the example of Yugoslavia in 1999.

        Well, China is not a part of Yugoslavia, and if they feel that they are finished, they will most likely use up their nuclear stockpiles. Most of them will not reach, but those who get the Americans will do them unacceptable damage, and the Americans know this well.

        Nonsense, the Americans themselves will not pull such a conflict, this is firstly, secondly, they owe China trillions and pay interest every year. Who is tied to whom it is still necessary to look. Comparison with Yugoslavia is also nonsense. Or do you think in such a war the Americans with Europe will bend China, well, well. You describe the scenario of a Hollywood cheap action movie, it is very far from reality. Or do you think if everything is so easy, and the hegemon has strength for this, then why has not it been fulfilled so far? If there was an opportunity they would have done with China like with Hiroshima and Nagasaki and no one would have uttered a word, so there is no longer an opportunity.

    North Korea needs to test its missiles in the direction of this aircraft carrier to produce.
    Or fly by accident.
    Or a sign from a neighbor will be:

    MDE ... I thought there was no place to fall below ... News on VO is dumberer every day. When planning work in hangars, the whole fleet is what to do? So they raise to the deck. They also pass through the Panama Canal. Is there anyone to scare? And at the same time, sometimes they come into the port with a bare deck. Unnamed Filipinos were waiting for the Americans to sail without a plane, or what? This visit is part of the duty plan and changing the composition of the group for the sake of possibly non-existent locals who grow Chinese ears is unprofitable and does not make sense. And the passage about air clutter is generally no way. Do they hope that stones from boats will drop the deck to deprive the enemy of aviation?

      when McCain set up fireworks on an aircraft carrier,

      John McCain did not arrange fireworks on the deck of the Forrestal, he was injured. On July 29, 1967, McCain was nearly killed in a fire on the Forrestal. The planes were ready to take off when a Zuni rocket (known for its unreliability) spontaneously launched from an F-4 aircraft, which was standing opposite McCain's aircraft. According to one version, it got into the fuel tank of McCain's plane, according to another - into the neighboring one. A fire broke out, spreading to the rest of the aircraft. As a result of the fire, bombs suspended from aircraft began to explode. The crash killed 134 and injured 161 US Navy sailors. More than 20 aircraft were irretrievably lost. McCain was wounded in the legs and chest by shrapnel.
